    Birthdays: 12/10

    Maybe the lamest group of the year....

    Reds:

    Rick Wrona (48) -Backup catcher who appeared briefly for the '97 Reds.

    Others:

    Mel Rojas (45) -Reliever who had a great year in 1992: 7-1, 1.43 ERA. Nephew of the Alou brothers; his son was drafted by the Pirtaes in 2010 so there's a chance the Alou line will continue in the majors.

    Floyd Giebell -Famous for one of baseball's great David-and-Goliath stories. In 1940, in only his third major league start, he pitched for Detroit against Bob Feller in front of a hostile Cleveland crowd in a game to decide the pennant. He beat Feller 2-0 and the Tigers won the pennant.

    I looked at the full list for today, chico. A lame group indeed!

    Let's add Joe Mays (37) - Pitched in 7 games for the 2006 Reds. Is a distant cousin of submarine Pitcher Carl Mays who threw the pitch that resulted in the death of Ray Chapman in 1920.
